A place where everybody knows your name
« on: October 07, 2011, 11:50:27 AM »
while the virtual bar is always nice to visit, those wanting to abide in reality can visit a new bar in Glasgow (in Scotland for those geographically challenged) called ... Lebowski's, tag line - "not a man, but a way of life".
I am not affiliated with this place and have yet to actually visit but one can only hope it is more than a tacky theme bar ... and serves a nice white russian or oat soda ;)
a recon mission is required i think!

One of the reviews from http://www.list.co.uk/place/103063-lebowskis/

is this the naffest concept for a bar ever?

sure, if it'd opened a couple of years after the film was out, and it was a proper spit and sawdust joint with a bowling alley and a rug that really tied the room together, maybe they'd have got away with it... but jumping on the sad-act bandwagon years after everyone but fat IT geeks have lost interest, and basically opening an early 90s style bar - wrought iron! blonde wood! - full of b-list ageing losers...

the food's alright but the complete lack of atmosphere, half-assed decor and cheesy music won't have rushing back in a hurry.


Yep, sounds like a dude's place to me! ;D

Having spent 20 years in that part of the world I was adamant that I would never cross Hadrian's wall again.
However,I think I might revise that decision shortly.
Bloody long way out of town though.
I used to go to a singles club down on the river between Anderston and Finnieston and that was bleak and far enough to walk home from with a skinful.
If you believe you can tell me what to think.
I believe I can tell you where to go.

Aye! I heard the story while visiting Castle Campbell in Scotland back in 2001.

Indeed and as a kid it is taught at the knee.

Scots will never forget the misery and atrocities that were put upon  their ancestors for hundreds of years.

Freedoooooooooooooooooooooooooommmm!!!!!!!!!

Braveheart is a fav of mine...  Visited Stirling Castle too... climbed the steep narrow staircase up to the top carrying tons of photography equipment. It might have been worth the trip had it not started pissing rain once I got there.

What - rain in Scotland? NO!!!

My ancestors were Scot (a MacDonald Clan derivative). Can't fit into my kilt any more though since I quit smoking years ago.

Oh, speaking of atrocities, the highland clearances were the worst. Fucking England...

Haud oan there a minnit.Haud yer wheesh.They clairences where doon t' yon Heilan Cheifties sellin oot 'cause of all yon monney they lost in ra sooth sea bubble.An' sheep where easier an cheaper t' look efter th'n coos.
An' they only moved doon t' London on account of losin' all there monney in the Panama fiasco.
Culloden was Scot on Scot and was not a bid for independence.Scottish regiments of the government forces fought followers of the Stewart claim of right to the 'British' crown.It was a British rebellion.It just happened to have been fought in Scotland.
If you want to discuss atrocities we could start with manifest destiny.And why Mexico is only half the size it started out.Oh and how Cuba Libra got its name and why the state flag of Hawaii has a Union Jack in it.
On the other hand...................................I think I'll just have another beer.
If you believe you can tell me what to think.
I believe I can tell you where to go.

for those who have the cheers theme tune stuck in their head i truly apologise.

before we start sharpening our swords and heading for York again to battle the rug-pissers, we should remember that with all politics it was the under table stuffed envelopes that undone the Scots in those days, the Other Lebowskis of the day out to protect theirs'.

However, we should also take great comfort in that fact that a thousand years before all this, the greatest army the world has known took one look at us and thought,"fuck that" and built a great big wall to keep us out!

But we digress ... ;-)
